Children’s Festival To-Go!
This year, the 2020 World Connections Children’s Festival will be a new, virtual experience. Children’s Festival To-Go! invites you to celebrate the diverse cultures in Utah by joining us on a road trip across the state and sharing new virtual experiences. This year’s festival includes a printable activity book with a map identifying historical sites across Utah, new recipes to try at home, and traditional art projects. Stay tuned during the week for Facebook Live events with special guests!
We invite families to tag us on Instagram and Facebook in pictures (of visiting locations, making art projects, or recipes, etc.) When you tag us you’ll be entered to win a free art kit! A total of 10 art kits will be given away!
Schedule of Activities:
Monday, August 3: The Children’s Festival To-Go activity book will be available to download and view online. There will be a map with 10 destinations, each focusing on a culture or ethnic group that has influenced Utah’s History. Each destination will include a historical place to visit, a coordinating art project, and a recipe influenced by that culture.
